5 October 2017 – PRETORIA – ITSI, the pioneering e-learning provider which enhances and simplifies the teaching and learning experience for both students and educators, was last night awarded the Supplier of the Year Award in the category for Basic Education at the annual EduWeek Awards. The award was handed to Wikus Breetzke, Head of Sales: ITSI during the prestigious award ceremony and dinner, held at Pigalle Restaurant in Green Point, Cape Town on 4 October.

The EduWeek awards recognise excellence across the African education ecosystem. From the inception of the most innovative and life-changing products and/or services to local heroes who go above and beyond to assist their communities and the lives of learners.

ITSI’s platform provides a unique way of simplifying, enhancing and unifying a single point of entry for teachers and learners – irrespective of the origin and variety of content and actions they employ in order to achieve mastery. It has the additional advantage of making learner activities, such as engagement with textbooks, visible and transparent to teachers and parents.

The ITSI platform works within any education environment, with any content, on any device. It provides an easy to adopt approach to 21st-century teaching and learning, without sacrificing the rigour associated with traditional teaching and learning.

Dr Lieb Liebenberg, founder and CEO at ITSI, commented, “We are delighted to have been honoured with this award. The teaching environment is increasingly fragmented in terms of the content and activities which teachers need to employ. The fragmentation stems from teachers having to use textbooks from different publishers, a variety of other printed and online resources, and a range of educational apps – the vast majority of which operate in silos. This is what we strive to overcome.”
